Last Thursday there was a six hour power outage in my building. On Friday morning I discovered that a 3550 would not boot up. Port 1 goes orange and POST halts. I believe this indicates blown RAM. This is particularly disheartening because the switch was plugged into a UPS, which should have protected it from the electrical surge when power was restored. Apparently not!
I removed the cover and was surprised to find that nothing on this board is socketted. Has Cisco gone to a no replaceable parts design for this product? Or could the RAM possibly be on the bottom of the board? (Doesn't seem likely.)
